and choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to go up to my altar, to turn incense into smoke-perfume, to wear an ephod before me? And I gave to the house of your father all of the offerings that are made by fire by the children of Israel? Bible

“and choose him.” This most likely refers to Aaron, the first High Priest and lineal ancestor to Eli, the High Priest.

“the offerings that are made by fire.” This refers to the priest’s responsibility over all the offerings and sacrifices that were burned on the altar.
